Taft!

economics / education

Who’s the fella that got us into this whole ‘income tax’ mess? Taft! This should give them Porkbusters some much-needed angst leading into the election season.
Yeah, yeah, I know that Taft only wanted to designate an excise on corporations whose stockholders had limited liability privileges, not to tax individual incomes. But that’s what happens in government — a little thing becomes a huge thing.
Then they make videos parodying 70s blacksploitation films. Happens every time.

    Wouldn’t it have been easier not to grant privileges in the first place? Tell me where in all the “free market” stuff it says that government should grant “limited liability privileges” to anyone?
    I know … I know, stick to the common tating. We don’t need no conomicals here.

    You never mentioned legs. That thing is filled with legs. Long, muscular, er um, legs on the table … yeah, that’s it the table legs. Hrrrrrmph. Gotta get back to the dungeon.

    Thanks for pointing out an earlier draft (when I was still trying to get the player to work) made its way through. Luckily, my terrible line about nautilus shells didn’t see the light of day, so that’s a good thing.
    But seeing as how there’s not going to be any movement on the issue for the next 4–8 years, might as well just sit back and enjoy filling out your forms.

    It’s why I’m here Boss®. And speaking about being here … I mean what’s so darn hard about spending a minute with friends for crying out loud?
    Yeeeeesh! Some people (as in everyone except you and I) are so lazy.
